Casey, I'm probably the wrong person as I've always trolled for Bass in the either the brackish estuaries or large impoundments - most bass fisho's cast and retrieve. My best trolling lures are generally collectibles now, Deceptions, Whitmores, Stuckeys, Viper Bass, Oargees, Micro Mullets and even the Manns 10+ had it's days in the brackish waters. Seriously the list is endless with everyone having their favorites, based on technique and experience thumbsupsmilie

Best advice, is to go to the closest tackle shop near to where your planning on fishing and get some local advice howdy
Cheers Rob

Casey, You have a top lure made in your area the small Hard at it lures are ideal, say the 50-60cm size is something a bass would relish. Nev
